If you are upset or think that you are being bullied, speak to one of our ABCs
— Anti-Bullying Councillors
What can you do?
- Talk to someone that you trust, like your Mum or Dad, an ABC or a teacher if you think you are being bullied
- Always expect that something will be done about the bullying if you have shared it with a grown up
- Always tell someone if you think someone else is being bullied
- Be a friend to someone who is being bullied. People who are bullied often feel very alone and helpless. It is very important to let them know that someone cares
- If you see someone else being bullied say something, bullies often make fun of others to make other people laugh. If you stand by and watch someone being bullied others may think that you are involved too
Bullying is wrong!
Nobody has the right to hurt other people by hitting them, kicking them, calling them names, sending them threatening text messages, spreading rumours about them, or by doing anything else which is meant to upset them.
People may be picked on because they wear glasses, or have a different accent, or another religion, or are shy or clever, or good looking, or disa-bled or because of their hair colour. Any excuse will do.
If this is happening to you, tell yourself that it is not your fault and that it is the people who are bullying who need to change, not you.
At school we have a policy to deal with bullying and you have the right to ask a teacher or another adult to help. You can also speak to an Anti-bullying Councillor (ABC) from our Anti-bullying Council (ABC) for advice. They are trained to help you feel better and know how to help you sort out the problem.
Remember to tell someone
